Using just her thoughts, this test subject can move a helicopter through a virtual 3D space. She's helping University of Minnesota researcher Bin He realize his dream of allowing immobilized or speechless individuals to control real objects with their minds. No other research group has, to He's knowledge, designed a system that allows a person to move objects on a screen at will through 3-D space using noninvasive technology. And the system's noninvasive character means it could have implications far beyond the hospital. It could possibly help people drive or navigate, or it may find a use in entertainment software.
